Rainbow Raft - Episode 14 - OCD and a Fresh Start
I've been struggling with OCD and Hoarding since the age of 9. Whether it's furniture, plastic bottles, paint cans, or random books. It's been a struggle to let go, and it's been an even bigger struggle to try and find help. But, we're on the right track for a fresh start!

Rainbow Raft - Episode 13 - Morecambe Adventures with Sky
We went on Holiday and toured the UK a little more.  We went to Morecambe, which is on the north eastern coast of England. It's worn down a little, especially after everyone decided to go abroad for Holidays. But, we loved it. To sum it up: I got addicted to tea We played as shit ton of Pokémon And we found the best hotel ever! [Review to come on T3ddy Talk]

Rainbow Raft - Episode 12 - Mental Health Talks with Danchou
A little bit of an upsetting episode - speaking of personal experiences and misconceptions that annoy us. Statistics (Note statistics in the show were old, from 2015. These statistics are more up to date): Half of LGBT people (52 per cent) have experienced depression, while three in five (61 per cent) reported having episodes of anxiety. Almost half of trans people (46 per cent) have also had thoughts about taking their own life.
